Summary
Creating Ourselves is a unique effort to lay the cultural and theological groundwork for cross-cultural collaboration between the African American and U.S. Latino/a communities. Acknowledging that dialog is a necessary precursor to collaboration, the editors of this collection maintain that African and Latino/a Americans need to cultivate the habit of engaging "the other" in substantive conversation. Toward that end, they have brought together theologians and scholars of religion from both communities. The contributors offer broadly comparative exchanges about the religious and theological significance of various forms of African American and Latino/a popular culture, including representations of the body, literature, music, television, visual arts, and cooking. Each section examines a particular form of popular culture and includes two essays, one by an African American scholar and one by a Latino/a scholar, as well as a short response by each scholar to the other's essay. The essays and responses are lively, varied, and often personal. Creating Ourselves helps to make popular culture available as a resource for theology and religious studies and for facilitating meaningful discussions across racial and ethnic boundaries
